Our oil sight glasses provide maintenance and lubrication management professionals a complete and immediate visual oil analysis. It is necessary for maintenance personnel to be able to quickly determine the condition of a circuit’s fluid with visual inspections. These inspections do not take the place of routine fluid analysis, but rather supplement those practices with daily (hourly) visual inspection to be sure no drastic or potentially catastrophic changes have occurred in the fluid. All our oil sight glasses offer an easy visual response our end users.
The oil sight glasses are constructed of durable cast acrylic (unless otherwise noted); they withstand most petroleum products to remain crystal clear. The primary benefit to implementing Schroeder Industries oil sight glass is easy detection and discharge of water contamination. Operators can also visually monitor the oil for discoloration or debris.
The oil sight glass drain valves are made from brass with a vulcanized rubber seal. Both materials have excellent resistance to hydrocarbon and petroleum-based products, hydraulic fluids, most silicone fluids, and fuels.
